Rose Bowl Holiday Decor

Don't throw those rose bowl glass containers away. I painted mine with acrylics and sprayed 3 coats of varnish. You can fill it with candies or use either a fake light or a real candle.


Approximate Time: 2-3 hours including drying time


  • many acrylic paint colors
  • paint brushes
  • sponges cut into shapes
  • black permanent skinny Sharpie
  • spray varnish
  • fake candles or real
  • candy


  1. Wash the rose bowl container with soap and water. Dry very well.
  2. Sponge on your main color. Let dry - 15 minutes.
  3. Cut sponge shapes for eyes, etc. Sponge on the eye color, etc. and let dry.
  4. Spray with clear varnish very lightly for the first layer. Let dry.
  5. Spray the next two varnish layers with drying time in between.
  6. Outline all features with the Sharpie marker.
  7. You are done. You can fill with candy or a tea light.

You can do one for every season. Enjoy!
